Casey Delaney is the Director of the Office of Professional and Career Development (OPCD). Casey earned her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Law where she was named a Top Ten Oralist in the Calvert Intra-School Moot Court Competition, served on the Dean's Council, and published an article and served as the Articles Editor for the American Indian Law Review.
Following law school, Casey practiced with a well-established firm in downtown Oklahoma City for nearly five years, where her state and federal practice was focused on complex civil litigation. She also volunteered numerous hours as a pro bono attorney with Oklahoma Lawyers for Children. In May of 2009, Casey was named a Super Lawyers® Rising Star, an award given to less than 2.5% of lawyers under the age of 40.
While practicing law, Casey developed a special interest in working with law students through participation in her firm's summer associate recruitment program and judging the University of Oklahoma's intra-school moot court competition. In 2009, she decided to pursue this passion full time by leaving the practice of law to serve in the career development office at Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, California. Casey was thrilled to have the opportunity to return to her alma mater, The University of Oklahoma College of Law, to serve as the Director of the OPCD.
As Director, Casey is responsible for the overall administration of the office and counsels students and alumni with regard to their career planning, resume preparation, job search strategies, and interview preparation. She plans and manages the fall and spring on-campus interviewing programs (OCI). Casey plans numerous career related presentations, alumni speaker programs, coordinates training skills workshops and advises on fellowship and judicial clerkship applications. She develops and maintains strong professional relationships with students, alumni, and employers. Casey is also an active member of NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals.
Casey is admitted to practice in all Oklahoma state courts, the Western District of Oklahoma and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. She is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association and the American Bar Association.
